NEWBURGH, N.Y. -- The City of Newburgh has been under a State of Emergency since early Monday morning. Water levels are already rising, pouring onto the concrete.
Billy Joe's Ribworks on the Newburgh Waterfront is already impacted.
Newburgh’s fire chief says that are expecting up to five feet of surge water. When Irene hit, it was about four feet.
The mayor is urging residents to stay home.
"The less people moving around, the less likelihood there is going to be a problem. We are expecting tonight to be high point of what is going to happen here. The best place is to be in your own home," said Newburgh Mayor Judy Kennedy.
The city has opened an emergency shelter along Williams Street at the United Armory.
